The national sport : to attack everything which is working well

The Fessenheim nuclear power plant closing, the critics surged during these previous years against “the all high speed train” policy and the stigmatization of air transportation are related to a typical French attitude: to denigrate and to attack everything that has generated the success of France and which the whole world is envying. To harbor these critics a new argument has been found, the protection of environment. The country is supplying its residents with power at the lowest price and emitting very few greenhouse gases. So we will limit the contribution of nuclear energy to the power mix by law ...

Energy : 2019 results and prospects for the "world to come"

In June, the oil group BP publishes energy production and consumption statistics for the previous year by sources and by countries. That allows to having a precise and definitive idea of the world situation, of CO2 emissions, of the evolution of the repartition between different fossil fuels, renewable and nuclear power and especially of the mid-term trends which are appearing. They allow to dismiss many wrong ideas regarding energy transition and to carry a judgment on the different proposals which are circulating in this domain.

The first observation is about energy consumption which, as a whole, is not failing, even ...

Debts : The end of the great fears

The massive measures to support economy after the corona virus outbreak will generate an increase of the country global indebtedness. If household, due to the constitution of  precautionary savings and to a slowing of their real estate investment, are few affected, it is not the same regarding enterprises and even regarding the State and the public administrations. With the sanitary crisis, and the measures adopted everywhere in the world to cope with it, we saw, due to that, a paradigms reversal. Before, the debts level was denounced as excessive but the threats were by large exaggerated. With the crisis, a ...

To get out of the crisis : The fireman and the architect

When a fire is starting, firemen are called. Once the fire is over, it is necessary to rebuild. It is at that time an architect is called. These two professions are indispensable, the one as the other. It is the same to make a country exiting from the major economic crisis provoked by the corona virus pandemic. All the states have tried to limit the economic and the social consequences of the measures taken to fight against the propagation of the outbreak. This one being, according to a general opinion, on the way to remission, not to say disappearance, it ...

Le nouvel Etat-stratège

LE NOUVEL ETAT STRATEGELe dernier livre d'Alain Boublil, le nouvel Etat-statège (Editions de l'Archipel) est paru le 5 février 2014.

Le livre apporte les réponses de son auteur  à la question qui est, en France, au centre de tous les débats politiques: "Que peut-on attendre de l'Etat aujourd'hui ? " Et il formule plusieurs suggestions sur l'exercice du pouvoir tirées de son expérience passée auprès de François Mitterrand. Observateur de l'économie mondiale comme conseil des nombreuses grandes entreprises qui ont fait appel à lui, il trace un portrait de la France d'aujourd'hui bien moins pessimiste que ce que l'on entend parfois, à condition que chacun fasse preuve de lucidité sur ses propres comportements. 

Les exigences ont certes été exacerbées par la crise. Mais y faire face est de plus en plus difficile car l'écart s'est creusé entre les attentes de chacun et la réduction des marges de manoeuvres publiques du fait des règles internationales, de l'endettement et des contraintes environnementales.

En dix chapitres, Alain Boublil dresse un bilan sans complaisances, prend la mesure des possibilités et des limites de l'Etat et il ouvre des voies nouvelles pour l'action publique. Il évoque le sauvetage de l'euro, le fardeau de la dette et le ras-le-bol fiscal, l'Etat-patron de Colbert à Jean-Marie Messier, le retour du complexe vis-à-vis de l'Allemagne et les nouveaux outils de l'Etat-stratège dans la mondialisation face aux défis industriels, aux enjeux de la transition énergétique, à la "dictature du CO2" et à la révolution du gaz de schiste. Et il met en garde contre les dérives de l'Etat-spectacle, qui gènent l'efficacité de l'action publique et les facilités de l'Etat-guichet qui débouchent sur le clientélisme.
